Best way to connect Roon to USB DAC

Looking for suggestions to connect my McIntosh MA7900 with built in DAC to Roon.

I currently have it connected via ALSA (using USB) using a Raspberry Pi and Ropieee. Which works OK.

I am wondering if there is a better way?

I have recently got rid of all the other Raspberry Pi devices for BlueSound devices and I think I am happier because of it. The RPi is good but the commercial stuff (IMO) just seems to work better. YMMV.

I would buy an Intel NUC, install ROCK at it and connect it via USB to the McIntosh MA7900. Everything is perfect and done.
You don’t need nothing else, nothing more.
